On tap at "Great Lost Bear" in Portland, Maine. Aroma was hoppy like any other IPA. Gold with off white head. Great hop florals taste that was nice on palate. This was my favorite of the three Sebago styles. Nice overall.

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2012, Great British Beer Festival, London Olympia, Hammersmith Road, London, England W14 8UX.

Clear medium orange color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light heavy hoppy, pine, grapefruit, orange - citrus, fruity. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120807]

It was clear and golden in color. The head was moderately sized, slightly bubbly, and off-white. It left just a bit of lacing. The smell had some herbs to it, but mainly orange and just a bit of pine as well. The taste was mildly sweet and floral, the orange comes back ever so slightly. The palate was medium also with a medium carbonation with a decently strong body. Overall, it is a very drinkable beer that I would come back to.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 Very bitter but good citrus and pine aroma. I’d buy it again.

Burnt orange with a 2 finger head. taste is very bitter. simcoe and centennial. very bitter for the ABV so it lacks balance. Lots of pine resin and chewy. Hint of grapefruit.

This is a pretty good IPA that doesn’t compare to some of the other truly awesome IPAs from Maine, and elsewhere in the NE. It has a nice crispness to it, especially on tap, but to me it is held back by a slight wateriness, and too restrained a flavor. It’s an IPA that doesn’t really have a dominant thing about it, which is a big thing missing for an IPA. . . but what is there tastes fine.

Pours a hazy orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter, of hops, grapefruit, floral notes, caramel, and grass with a medium bitter finish. Drinkable, solid IPA that goes down easy.

Golden orange golden pour with a dissipating head. Nose is citrus and pine. Drinkable IPA with bitter hoppiness and citrus. Carbonation soft with a light texture. Finish is dry, hoppy with a sweet bitter ending. Quaff Score

GBBF. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation provides a sting. Fresh hops provide further sting. Pine dominates but there is fresh juicy orange and other citric things. Semi dry finish with good fresh hop bitter linger.

Slightly hazy orange yellow color with thick white lacing. Floral aroma with a slight grapefruit feel. Medium mouthful with a lingering floral hop feel. Good cooler weather beer.
